Police in Battle Creek have accused Joel Wagner, 59, of attacking Kori-Lee Moser, 44, at their home April 2. Moser died after being rushed to an area hospital.
But a Battle Creek city spokesman claimed narcotics may be involved in Moser’s death. Authorities are waiting for the results of forensic tests.
Wagner and Moser lived together for two years, Battle Creek Police said.
Court documents reviewed by WOOD-TV indicate Wagner will appear in court Monday, April 17.
